Giorgia Picci, Ph.D.

The Pennsylvania State University

Post-Doctoral Researcher in Developmental Neuroimaging

Giorgia is a recent doctoral graduate from Penn State where she worked with Drs. Suzy Scherf and Jenae Neiderhiser. Currently, she is interested in understanding the biological basis (e.g., using behavior genetics and fMRI) of social developmental tasks, like peer relationships and romantic relationships, during adolescence and beyond. For example, she is investigating the role developmental tasks and processes (e.g., pubertal development) play in the development and emergence of various components of face processing during adolescence. In addition, she is using a behavior genetics approach to understand the long-term associations among parent-adolescent relationships and romantic relationships in adulthood.
